Lol I was actually serious about that. When I think of Wyoming, I think of just a field. No barn, houses, or roads...just a field.

Columbia is a very boring looking city here in South Carolina. Dreary colors. There are a lot of places like that in the Upstate in the winter. In summer and fall, the colors are vivid making the towns look better.

Phoenix, Sacramento and Columbus come to mind first.

I will defend Kennewick, WA. If you just drive by on I-82, perhaps. But Kennewick is uniquely situated on the mighty Columbia River, with some great bridges and parks along the riverfront.

I also will defend Wendover, Nevada/Utah. If you squint, you can blur the casino signs, and notice some beautiful desert vistas including some great mountain ranges around the town.

You want nothing? Try driving through Fresno and Bakersfield, CA. There are mountains to the west and east, but most days are hardly visable due to either haze, smog or fog.

Yeah, if I had to describe Bakersfield to someone who's never been there, I'd say that "It's California--only without any of the things people actually like about California."

Bakersfield looks like a city designed by the most bored and uncreative SimCity player ever---like they just starting laying residential and commercial zones on a flat landscape and sort of lost interest before they fell asleep.

Columbus, Ohio. And I hate to say it, but San Jose too.

Houston and Florida I disagree with. Florida is scenic. At least the parts that I've been to. Orlando was very scenic. Jaxville was ok. Daytona, was not as scenic, but the ocean is always nice to look at.

As far as Houston goes, it has scenery. I'm talking more like just flat, flat land. Hardly a skyline. If there are buildings, they're dreary looking or run-down. Kansas was fuh-LAT! Just ___________________. Not alot to see....
